    Hi I have a Delaware Rooster named Eligh he is 1 year this month.
    he attacks us when given the chance. he is sneaky he will come around the car and if your back is to him he will get you. I dont know what to do maybe the auction :(

    Life is too short to keep a mean rooster. Roosters can do physical harm, especially to children. Roosters are easy to come by--there's always someone on Craigs List or here on BYC giving away roosters. Get rid of the nasty boy (free on CL, auction, soup pot) and try again. There are so many nice roosters in the world that are slaughtered every day because people can't keep them, and you could rescue one.

    I have three roosters, and two of them were given to me for free by a fellow BYCer. Purebred breeding stock, too.
